    CAC recently lost a great friend, brother in Christ, and representative of CAC when Strength and Conditioning Coach John McKenna of Notre Dame High School in Trenton, N.J., passed away on June 21.  Click Here to read his obituary.

    “He was a leader in everything he did including his tireless promotion of our CAC High School Cathletes chapters.  His passion and enthusiasm for sports and life, or more properly stated perhaps, a sports life centered on Christ was infectious.  I will always remember Coach’s specially-made t-shirt proclaiming, ‘Jesus Christ is my superhero.'”, said CAC President and Founder Ray McKenna.   

    McKenna added, “Please keep coach, his family, and our CAC family in the Diocese of Trenton in your prayers.  Everyone who had the pleasure of knowing Coach McKenna will miss him terribly.  In a world with few heroes, we just lost a great one.  We look forward to seeing Coach in heaven leading the Saints in an arduous workout.”
